Open to the public, the one-hour event will feature Jerry Irvine, a national expert in combating cyber crime. Irvine is a member of the National Cyber Security Task Force, a joint operation between the Department of Homeland Security and the U.S. Chamber of Commerce responsible for advising on cyber security policy. The seminar promises to offer practical help on preventing cyber attacks, whether on families or business owners.
Over Thanksgiving, online sales jumped 26% from a year earlier. Online buyers often use multiple devices in the buying process and thus expose themselves to hackers, especially through unsecured wireless connections, the hole through which hackers creep in.
"Firewalls today look like Swiss cheese," says Jerry Irvine, CIO and partner of Prescient Solutions, a Chicago-area IT staffing firm.
Families and businesses are especially vulnerable. According to Irvine, most commonly these hacks are a result of phishing, the activity of defrauding an online user of financial information by posing as a legitimate company. Irvine says the average person receives 75 phishing scams a day and clicks on 25 of them. Surreptitiously, phishers gain access to your system and use malware to tap into financial information you thought was secure.
Irvine's expertise on cyber security has been featured in a number of national and industry publications including The New York Times, WGN Radio, and Wired magazine.

And even well-managed layers can create problems within an organization, said Jerry Irvine, CIO at Chicago-based security vendor Prescient Solutions.
Different security systems require different kinds of expertise, and the larger the organization, and the more systems there are in place, the more possibilities there are for conflicts -- especially when some of the systems are managed by different companies, such as outsourcers, cloud vendors, or other service providers.
Each security team focuses on its own security task, and this can interfere with that of other groups and with enterprise operations.
"Groups saddled with the responsibility of physical security may tighten down access controls to the point where applications and systems are affected, causing failure or extreme performance issues," Irvine said.

"We have found that travelers going to countries in Asia, the Russian Federation, the Baltic states, and even parts of South America have their systems attacked and most likely breached while abroad," says Jerry Irvine, CIO at IT outsourcing provider Prescient Solutions and a member of the National Cyber Security Partnership, an organization established to develop shared strategies and programs to Read more

Access from the outside was rare, certainly not easily attained and "air gapped," says Jerry Irvine, chief information officer for the Chicago-based Prescient Solutions, an IT support firm. "That provided security."
But these days IoT devices are increasingly controlled by mobile devices and websites opening them up to the Internet and therefore an entire universe of attackers. While that makes it easier for consumers to access everything from their email via a watch, or their home locking system from a smartphone, it's also easier for hackers to access those areas as well.
"From a convenience factor it's wonderful," says Irvine, who is also a member of the U.S. Chamber of Commerce's Cyber Leadership Council "From a security factor it's scary as heck."
As many as five different standards organizations are now suggesting more secure communication protocols, which would provide higher levels of integration between devices and the security solutions that manage them, Irvine says.
